>> julie: under arrest inside iran. three american citizens crossing an invisible line and ending up in custody of the islamic republic. i julie banderas and relax as fox reports tonight. >> one hurdle overcome pneumatically passed a bill out that shows we can bring together conservative moderate and progressive democrats spew another if i can begin a kiosk in the debates into dark approving a major healthcare reform package as democrats celebrate republican state in. the battle lines are drawn. been agreed to get the right reform rather than just rest -- rush something through the can be lessened for worship in the
7:01pm
future. >> julie: became looking for justice. this is what they got. i cry for freedom drowned out by the roar of gunfire. >> julie: new developments at this hour on three missing americans believed to be behind bars in iran. iran state tv confirming guards arrested three u.s. tourist after they crossed the border from iraq. the trio apparently was on a hike in the mountains section of northern iraq. that buffers the kurdistan province. iran said they were arrested because they did not obey orders from the guards. knowing understand from kurdish officials in iraq the detainees are two men and one woman. details are in short supply but here is what we know based on reports. the three u.s. citizens were staying in iraq's oil-rich and self ruled kurdish reason that region. this part of iraq
7:02pm
is relatively free of violence. in fact it's a draw to adventure stories for its scenery. understanded for a friend stayed behind at the hotel because of and elements and kurdish officials tell us he then received a phone call from his friends saying iranian border guards had surrounded them. since then, not a word. the u.s. has not had a diplomatic ties with iran since 1879. the state department now asking switzerland to represent its interests in iran specifically to confirm whether or not these reports of the three americans are in fact being detained by iran is -- if the suspect. if so to seek access to them. bastard john bolton is former u.s. ambassador to the imaginations and is also a "fox news" computer. always great to have your ambassador bolton. what we know? helping the deal could this become? spec i would be quite concerned about it. i think anybody who remembers the iranian seizure of our embassy in tehran in 1979 and the agony we went through
7:03pm
with the americans who are captured at that time, has to worry about these hikers. even if they were completely innocent crossing a line that's not exactly painted in yellow in that region, they are not potentially hostages of the iranian regime. i think we have to be very worried about that. >> julie: iran has detained americans before. with all remember roxana said very. is this detention of people who cross the border by mistake, or is there more to lawlessness to give back that we do not know. i don't think we'll be able to find it out until our swiss protecting power look after our interests in the absence of diplomatic relations with iran, until they can get access to these people and here something more definitive from the regime. but you know at the very time when the regime in iran is putting on trial perhaps 100 of their own people, dissidents, people who objected to the june 12 presidential election
7:04pm
outcome, blaming foreign powers for using them as subversives, i think anytime that capture americans, we need to be worried too and i think there is a message to be heard. i'm just not sure that messages. another white house's hearing that message loud and clear. in fact the white house reached out to iran in the early days of the new administration then came a crackdown on protest you just mentioned who disputed the election, and now this. what do you think? you think he white house will have to change its policy towards iran that iran is beginning to try many of those protesters they have in custody? yak at has been a real mystery to try and discern what are going to negotiate with iran about. because i don't think there's any possibility you can scram through diplomacy. as we have seen a crackdown after the election, now this hostagetaking
7:05pm
and a number of other belligerent acts putting iran's continuing support for terrorism. i think administration has very little maneuvering room here. >> julie: what about, in chad? idiocies three americans as a way to maybe start his country and repair the damage to his reputation because a crackdown or to give them access, the trial of the dissidents which is a show trial which began today in iran, has as its basis the idea that foreign powers, notably the united states and united kingdom, used to the dissidents, used their discontent with the outcome of the june top election to try and threaten the region -- the regime. it is very easy for propagandist to say here is an example of american strength to sneak across the border to aid the dissidents and the like. you can imagine how they can play this out. so it's very important for the safety of the three americans that we get access to them through the swiss and that we find a way to get them out of the country. >> julie: amb. john bolton, thank you very much for joining us on this saturday on "fox
7:06pm
report." >> julie: .com did you about this? pabon square at new york's laguardia airport forcing thousands of travelers to evacuate the main terminal. what a scary mess. it happened early this morning. people are rushed outside and 5:30 am. flights were delayed. traffic backed up all over the country. police say all the chaos was caused by one man. he's 32 years old his name is scott began. lee said he was acting crazy. police say when they check his bank account batteries and wires inside. it turned out it was a fake bomb. the court's main terminal to open back up until nine am. mccann has been charged with having a fake bomb in an airport and making terrorist threats. >> julie: now to our nation's health care, the battle begins all over again as congress men and women head into summer session to try to appeal and sell this whole program to their
7:07pm
constituents. president obama is one step closer to getting his massive health-care reform package approved the president said his goal is to make sure every single american has health insurance. late last night the house energy and commerce committee approved the reform package before going into summer recess. but it was a very close vote. 31-28. so what kind of upper battle is the package facing now that it's heading into the senate eq molly henneberg is live in washington with details. >> president obama heralded the passage of this bill out of the third and final house committee and said the u.s. should "build upon the historic consensus that has been forged." the present of a statement today saying the bill will strengthen consumer protections and choice while lowering costs and improving care. but it was a tough slog for democrats to get a bill out on the energy and commerce committee. five democrats ended up winning against it along with all of the republicans. now house democratic leaders will put together a final bill and
7:08pm
get up for a floor vote. >> i feel confident we will pass a health care reform bill in the house when we come back in september. >> the senate is also working on its version of health care reform. that will go into the fall as well. republicans in the house and senate to the democrats legislation will "piled higher costs and create new washington bureaucracies." one of the main objections is a government run health insurance plan that they say will undercut private insurance plans. their plan for government run healthcare would disrupt our current system and forced millions of americans who currently enjoy their employer-based coverage into a new health-care plan ground by government bureaucrats. >> senator who said republicans want to allow small businesses to pool their resources to buy more affordable health insurance for their employees and they want to give tax breaks to individuals who buy their own health insurance. >> julie: molly henneberg, thank
7:09pm
you. >> coming off the victory of the house committee passing the health care reform bill last night, president obama is sounding more and more optimistic as he talks about the economy. in his weekly address this morning he said now is the time for americans to get innovative. listen to make we need to recapture the spirit of innovation that has always moved america forward. that means once again having the best educated, highest skilled workforce in the world. that means a healthcare system that makes it possible for entrepreneurs to innovate and businesses to compete without being saddled with skyrocketing insurance costs. >> julie: the republicans continue to hammer away at the president's health-care proposal. if x. optical to senator johnston said obama's plan would not help healthcare at all. cnet republicans in congress know that serious health-care reform is a top priority of the american people. we are committed to getting it done. but we need to get the right reform, rather than just rush something through that would leave us in far worse shape in the future. >> julie: senator thune said he
7:10pm
